Our Process

Park Street School welcomes the opportunity to share with families the wonderful and rich academic experience available to you and your children. We offer a continuous, integrated educational program for students age two through sixth grade. Visiting our school is the best way to see and understand our program as well as envision it enriching the life of your child. We invite you to join us for one of our Fall Open Houses, as well as take an individualized tour with someone in our Admissions Department.

We seek to admit students from a variety of backgrounds and families who will add richness and diversity to our community. Although the majority of our families live in downtown Boston communities, a small percentage comes from surrounding communities. Because we believe that parents play the most important role in educating their children, we desire to serve families who have a strong interest in becoming involved and investing in their children’s school.
